Ataxia UK events

Like the look of one of our events? Then now is the best time to get in touch with our friendly fundraising events team. Call us on 020 7582 1444 or email [email protected]You can fill out our sign up form and we will get back to you.

We will talk you through the process of getting signed up to an event, and we’ll be there every step of the way to help you hit your fundraising target!

Depending on the event, we can send you a free t-shirt, or if you are taking part in a running event for us, you will get a complimentary running vest to wear on the day of your race, once you’ve raised £250!

We can advise you on setting up a fundraising page, and share some useful hints and tips with you to maximise your fundraising.

You will also receive one of our fundraising packs which include sponsorship forms for any cash donations you collect offline.

Upon completion of your event we will send you a thank you letter and certificate to display.

We also love seeing the photographs from your event, so please do send these through to us after your event and we can share these within the Ataxia UK community across our channels.
